In brief: Moisturizer

I am a strong advocate on using non-scented soap and moisturizer after( preferably daily) bathing.
Have you tried these? As for the cream, the former two are cortisone the clotrimazole is for fungal infection- they are totally different. See a dermatologist if the above measures did not work for you.
